a deepening political crisis there behind days of mass protests against the prime minister and they include this man nicole passion year now he has been the one driving these demonstrations he was filmed before being bundled into a police car you see now that happened just after talks between passion ian and the prime minister serge saga seann they break down on live television when surrogacy and stormed out the prime minister's opponents including tens of thousands of peoples on the streets are angry that he's been appointed prime minister after serving a maximum term of ten years as president and they're accusing him of clinging to power. media is editor in chief of the the n. report that's an independent online news service and she's joining us from the capital get a van thank you very much indeed for talking to so it's been quite a busy day today with a lot of the major leaders of this protest movement being detained then charged and
4:06 pm
certainly most definitely arrested now. that's correct tens of thousands continue to remain in the streets the armenian investigative committee issued a statement that they were in fact arrested just about half an hour before we went to air i mean yes the national assembly president made an announcement because the m.p.'s having parliamentary immunity the parliament has seventy two hours to call an emergency session to strip them of their immunity and majority in parliament must vote for that so when but when made the statement we were curious to see what he was saying he called on site to have a political dialogue he said many of the protests for unlawful yet he made no reference to the fact that these three m.p.'s had in fact been arrested so this is an interesting development another one is that police have made several statements throughout the day saying that any protests today will be considered unlawful and
4:07 pm
they will be dispersed immediately and the police will use all measures to do that so there's been a lot of information that we're trying to handle and and also to report about because what it was really grabbed the attention of the world is the fact that these protests have not only lasted for as long as they have that they've increased every day every little thing about ten days now. it really is an unprecedented extraordinary cycle of events that have taken place we have never seen anything like this in the twenty seven year history of independent armenia people from all walks of life from all regions from all over you know. and economic strata have joined the movement primarily students and high school students young people we've had people from the i.t. sector from very various sectors of the economy you know finally saying enough is enough and and because we no longer feel that or the people no longer feel that

4:33 pm
afghanistan's has are a minority community and he's joining us on skype from wolverhampton in the midlands in the u.k. thank you for talking to us this seems to be a concerted campaign by whoever is carrying out these attacks to disrupt the elections which you do to take place in october. you're right you know that is the part of the talk show and today they're into attacks on the walter reed station and i think there's a consistent push into making sure that people are unable to lose that. if they attempt to register to. be attacks on them but i think the issue of democratic process is compounded by the you know dickel syrians and incompetency of the afghan government itself or not being able to protect. the voter registration centers and the voters a lot but i think what makes the attack in kabul today. is
4:34 pm
that the tax on the western part of kabul daschle virtue where it's a main because our populated part of the capital and who it's an attack on a community who been under attack for more than two years consistently of the attacks i mean i returned from kabul only about two weeks ago and it's very difficult to turn to to turn into any street in kabul not visiting or not seeing signs of of victims of or the names of the victims of terror attacks on the here's our community indeed and the persecution of the has our minorities the third largest ethnic group in afghanistan is well documented isn't it but how can you expect the government of after afghani to be able to provide security to that has our or any other community for that matter when it is battling against at least two armed groups who are prepared to commit suicide atrocities as i understand them
4:35 pm
it's very difficult for any security force to or any security apparatus to protect every you know protect its citizens against every attack you know we have seen in the west and you know it's absolutely impossible. for to protect against a group or individuals who want to die themselves in order to. kill or maim many other but i think what we can see the anger within the is our community that there is an increasing apathy from within the afghan security forces towards the huizar and you know the the the there was a report by the state department on the human rights in afghanistan which clearly states that there is a concerted systematic marginalization of these our community but who does not you know the afghan state does not pay any attention whether it is to the economic or social welfare of the car let alone to the security welfare of these are the laws
4:36 pm
but you know we understand because our people in the town well you know the country's war against multiple terrorist or terrorist groups but some of these terror groups are actually used by some elements within the afghan government force tribal political purposes alright ruhollah you have to be very interesting point you raised i thank you very much indeed. thank you. president trump has accused former f.b.i. director james comey of leaking classified information in his memoir komi has been promoting his new book in which he portrays trump as quote an ego driven liar komi was fired by trump last year as the f.b.i. investigated alleged russian meddling in the twenty six thousand u.s. election while the president tweeted james komi is memos are classified i did not declassify them they belong to our government therefore he broke the law
4:37 pm
additionally he totally made up many of the things he said i said and he's already a proven liar and leaker where are memos on clinton lynch and others and there he was referring to the rest of the rhetoric lynch of course the previous u.s. attorney general. has more now from washington d.c. . these memos in question were written by james komi who at the time was director of the f.b.i. and they document the private conversations between komi and president donald trump in the early days of the administration komi said he wrote all of this down because he was concerned by several of the topics that trump brought up in these meetings and in particular two requests made by the president. asked him to drop a federal investigation into a senior adviser and also asked komi for a pledge of loyalty given this was when coleman was leading an investigation into
4:38 pm
possible russian meddling in the two thousand and sixteen presidential elections komi says he refused to offer his loyalty pledge and was soon fired by trump after his firing komi then shared two of these memos with a close friend who then disseminated it to a reporter called me says he did this hoping that release of this information to the public would provoke a special counsel investigation to be appointed and that is exactly what has happened with robert muller the special counsel now looking into trump's campaign associates possible colluding with russia in the can in the elections as well as a possible obstruction of justice by the president himself with a republican strategist joe watkins is a former white house aide to president george h. w. bush and he thinks that donald trump doesn't have much to gain by discrediting the memos. this is rather unprecedented we haven't had u.s. presidents in the past attack these institutions within government so only these
4:39 pm
investigate investigative institutions have not ever been attacked by a sitting u.s. president so this is something new for our country at the same time i'm not sure that everybody is buying it despite the fact that there are these almost daily attacks on the integrity of the f.b.i. and others leadership in the department of justice i think americans for the most part still have a great deal of confidence in those institutions i don't think it'll change the mind of the president trumps base i think president obama's base will think that it's just another attack on the president's character but for the most part i think it clearly sheds light for many americans on what happened in certainly those early conversations in the early days of the trump presidency which are fascinating to read and i'm sure will will selling james james komi a lot of books now it's been twenty five years since stephen lawrence an eighteen year old black man was murdered in a racially motivated attack in south london his death and the subsequent handling
4:40 pm
of the investigation spots a public inquiry that found the city's police department was institutionally racist and behave a triple. stephen lawrence was murdered because he was black stopped by a group of white thugs in an unprovoked racist attack injustice or to shed light on rule used to describe the lawrence case stephen spada told me that he had everything going for him steve was a. book on people and he was have you know would have anybody. you know for somebody to actually kill. such a person to what reason would you have to kill somebody to stephen's murder changed britain's legal policing landscape for epa the failure to bring his killers to justice was a state of the country's legal system for years within days of stephen's murder the
4:41 pm
police were given the names of the five suspects but they failed to act and the subsequent botched investigation led the police to be accused of institutional racism. that was the judgment to put inquiry ordered by the government top to steepen stat when the five suspects appeared there was chaos the report found that stevens race had affected the way the case was handled. made seventy recommendations saying police attitudes towards racism had to improve and that the brace relations act needed to be strengthened to put an end to discrimination it also ordered targets for the recruitment retention a promotion of black and asian officers the most damning part of the report though was the claim that the police were institutionally racist i think it was fat back
4:42 pm
then and i think it's fair in the here and now because one of the things that people will look. on is has week quest has policing moved on and even though there has been some progress it's been slow the metropolitan police says it is not the organization it was at the time of stephen lawrence his killing it would take nearly nineteen years for toobin to be found guilty of stevens' murder these people killed. destroyed their lives stephen lawrence would be forty three level lawrence says he'd be given his son's killers but the justice will not be done until all those involved in his son's murder a behind bars ever heywood al-jazeera in london shopkeepers in south africa's northwest province are counting the cost of days of looting that have left many of their premises destroyed protests against alleged corruption in local government and the
